What people are saying about Warsaw

Wonderful experience, talented performer, considerate and helpful staf

I had trouble locating my voucher, but the kind gent behind the counter, amidst still setting up, was very helpful in guiding me to my seat. The playing was lovely, if the acoustics allowed some notes to be stronger than others, the experience was quite lovely. To hear a great composer in his hometown was a wonderful experience. Would go again.

Amazing ! Thank you for this awesome experience!

Driver -czeslaw was superb! He showed us around krakow before taking us to the camp! Told us good places to eat and great tips! You made the trip so worth while. We were dreading the 6am wake up and the train rides but to the person who picked us up and to the driver you made it all worth it! One of the best activities I have done all around Europe! So thank you!

Awesome for family with young kids wanting to see lots of Warsaw!!

The tour was excellent and very thorough. Olaf was knowledgeable and funny, driver Jerzy on point with driving and timing. We saw what we wanted, which is not always possible with really young children. Thanks a million for the brilliant tour.

Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and good sense of humour

Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and good sense of humour, our guide was exceptional and gave us a fantastic tour of Warsaw. Great value for money!

A marvellous experience with an outstanding performance from Joanna.

Joanna Rozewska is a wonderful, passionate performer. It was a privilege to watch her play from so close so that one could follow her fingers as they flashed across the keyboard. It was a bonus to meet her in person & purchase her CD. The venue was great and intimate that added to the experience. And the compère was charming and informative in bringing together which was for us a most memorable and enjoyable Warsaw experience. We thoroughly recommend this to any other visitors to the lovely city.
